just darling

hello - wow, it's been a whole week since I've been here:(  I have something to share today ☺  A page for  the May sketch at C'est Magnifique.  They have a beautiful sketch to play along with and here's what I've created:
 This page uses mostly Prima products - I'm determined to use up some of my left-overs that I have ☺ I've also used some lovely chipboard from Imaginarium Designs.
Here are some close-up's:
 ... journalling with my typewriter - also a Prima Stamp for the title ... I've done some gesso work around the edge of the page as well as some distressing of the cardstock ...
 ... lots of gorgeous Prima flowers and some buttons - for the chipboard: I've given it a light coat of gesso, then applied embossing ink and powder in clear and glitter; then I've added in some brown ink to give it a more vintage feel - love how it turned out ☺☺
 ... more Prima and a hand-made birdie button from me ...
 ... a close-up of the chipboard and I've also used muslin ...
 ... a tag and more flowers to finish off the sketch ...
I just love how this page has come together.

... and here is the sketch:
That's all I have for now - I'm off to the Handmade by Suzanne scrap booking retreat later on this week, so hopefully I can get heaps of stuff done - cannot wait☺☺  Have a great week.

Gorgeous use of the sketch and that photo is beautiful. The journaling is perfect and they are the sort of words that I need to think of when scrapping photos like these. Fabulous page.
